Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Ground was a game-time decision last weekend and found the end zone twice. He should be out there against the Broncos.

49ers HC Chip Kelly likes both quarterbacks

Wednesday, January 20, 2016, 4:17pm

Mercury News - [Full Article]

Chip Kelly wouldn’t reveal Wednesday whether he favors Colin Kaepernick or Blaine Gabbert as the 49ers quarterback.

But Kelly, during his introductory press conference as coach, inserted Gabbert’s name a couple times when answering the handful of questions he received about Kaepernick.

“Obviously Kap is an extremely talented football player and you need a good quarterback to win,” Kelly said. “But I was also impressed from the film I watched in terms of how Blaine played this year. Both of those players made this an attractive situation.”

Kelly said he’s spoken and crossed paths with both quarterbacks, and that league rules prevent him from talking any football schematics until the offseason program begins April 4.

Fantasy Impact:

Kelly's quarterbacks tend to be productive, and although Kaepernick is a better fit for some of the read-option aspects of Kelly's offense, Gabbert had his moments towards the end of the year.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde had foot surgery late in the season, 'good to go' for OTAs

49ers GM Trent Baalke said Carlos Hyde had foot surgery late in the season and should be good to go for the start of the 49ers offseason program.

Fantasy Impact:

Hyde was #10 RB through the first six weeks before injuring his foot. If he can get healthy, he should be productive in Chip Kelly's offense.

Eagles hire Frank Reich as offensive coordinator

Eagles have hired Frank Reich as their OC. Done deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Reich previously served as the OC of the Chargers for the last two seasons and his offenses finished 18th and 9th in yards gained even though they were in the bottom half in points scored in both seasons. New HC Doug Pederson is expected to call the plays in Philadelphia

Eagles reportedly agree to terms with new DC Jim Schwartz

Eagles have a new Defensive coordinator in Jim Schwartz. Deal is not yet signed, but agreement in place.

Fantasy Impact:

His last stint as DC was with the Bills in 2014 when they were 4th in both yards and points allowed. In eight seasons as the Titans' DC, he had four top 12 units in yards allowed. This looks like a good hire for the Eagles.

Sunday, January 17, 2016, 11:40am

Seahawks Inactives

CB Tye Smith
RB Bryce Brown
FB Will Tukuafu
LB Eric Pinkins
G Mark Glowinski
C Kristjan Sokoli
DT A.J. Francis

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch probably won't see his usual workload since Christine Michael is playing pretty well and Lynch is coming off of a long layoff. We do expect Lynch to lead the backfield in touches.

Panthers WR Ted Ginn ACTIVE vs. Seattle

Panthers Inactives

WR Brenton Bersin
CB Lou Young
S Dean Marlowe
RB Brandon Wegher
RB Fozzy Whittaker

Packers Inactives
Brett Hundley QB
Davante Adams WR
Robertson Daniel CB
LaDarius Gunter CB
John Crockett RB
Andy Mulumba LB
Josh Walker OL

Fantasy Impact:

Randall Cobb and James Jones will start at WR for the Packers. Jared Abbrederis should see more snaps.

Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski ACTIVE vs. Chiefs

Saturday, January 16, 2016, 3:21pm

Patriots Inactives
Jon Bostic OLB
Geneo Grissom OLB
Chris Harper WR
Tre Jackson OG
Ishmaa'ily Kitchen NT
LaAdrian Waddle T
Tavon Wilson SS

Fantasy Impact:

Julian Edelman (foot) makes his return this week. This was probably the most realistic target date all along for Edelman. He likely won't be 100-percent but should be good targets after suffering a similar injury to Dez Bryant toward the end of the season. Rob Gronkowski has back and knee issues and reports say the bigger concern is his back, but he will play against the Chiefs in this divisional matchup and is our top TE play.

Jeremy Maclin ACTIVE vs. Pats

Saturday, January 16, 2016, 3:13pm

Chiefs Inactives
Marcus Cooper CB
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OG
David King DE
Mitch Morse C
Aaron Murray QB
Rakeem Nunez-Roches DT
Ramik Wilson ILB

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a scary looking injury last week, Jeremy Maclin (ankle) will play today against the Pats in this divisional matchup. It's hard to imagine Maclin is 100-percent but should continue to be a top target for QB Alex Smith. Spencer Ware (ankle) is also active for the Chiefs.

Friday, January 15, 2016, 5:23pm

Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 19. Brady will be fine to face the Chiefs.

Friday, January 15, 2016, 5:23pm

Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 19. Manning is set to start against the Steelers.
